The story blends the accounts of six teens and young adults remembering friends who died as a result of drug and alcohol abuse—and reflecting on their own struggles with addiction.
“We would go on trips, we would fill up a full tank of gas and just drive down the road,” one young woman remembers. Later, her friend became more withdrawn: “Other groups of people that she was with were pulling her back.”
“We knew something bad was going to happen to him,” says a young man, recalling one of his best friends.
“I started seeing the ‘rest in peace’ posts all over Facebook,” says a third. “I didn't even make it to his funeral because I was using (drugs),” says another.
